Scott Van Pelt Posts On UK Rivals Message Board

OK, last one: first of all, I've always felt that Scott Van Pelt--along with Kenny Mayne--is the best ESPN has to offer, for many reasons. He is self-depreciating and humble, and has shown so with messages to Deadspin, on the radio, etc.

Well, after giving Kentucky's Rivals site a shout on SportsCenter tonight, he posted the following on Kentucky's free board:

You fine people are bananas
....I had to mention you on the show because I saw there were 5,000 + of you on here. Love the passion.I recall how bitter you were when we lead the show with VMI. As I think I explained that night, you all will ALWAYS be news because of who you are.We weren't "anti-Kentucky" that night or "on the bandwagon" tonight.You are KENTUCKY which, as I said on the show, puts you on the short list with UCLA, Kansas, IU, Duke and Carolina for all time programs. When something like VMI happens, we are going to lead with it. When a player establishes a new scoring record at a school with all your history, we are going to lead with it. Pretty simple.As a hoop fan, I enjoyed it because I think Meeks is fantastic and I love how he carries himself.SEC is wide open ..good luck the rest of the way.I'll drop in from time to time to say hey - I know ESPN sucks, or so I read, but I have developed a think skin. I know it's all rooted in a passion for sports that I share.Y'all be easy. SVP

That's about as cool as it gets.

You should post when this will be on Instant Classic. I watched a few seconds of the game last night, but had no idea this was transpiring, I'd love to re-watch it in it's entirety.
Well, you can set your DVR for ESPN U (I'm pretty sure) for 3:30 today and watch it after work.
Welcome, Deadspin readers! Make yourself at home.
I use to think SVP was cool. Then I found out he hangs out on UK message boards.
And here I thought Heavy Soul had some rival blog over in England and Scott Van Pelt was posting on it...and then knife fights ensued ala the "Beat It" video. I can still dream.
You are totally right about this.
I can see that you are putting a lot of time and effort into your blog and detailed articles! I am deeply in love with every single piece of information you post here.
